president obama had a bad night. he's had a great four years considering and that's where my focus goes from here, but i'm not going to be in denial that the president needs to pivot on this and needs to get aggressive on the record, not so much to be negative against things that romney has said. we all know that. state what you've established. where was the automobile loan and the saving of billions of jobs? where was the private sector job growth? why wouldn't he mention not outsourcing and creating jobs in america in almost to the point where the president's team failed him. >> performance, the campaign surrogates that were out ahead of time were saying that mitt romney is a great gatdebatgator debator. >> that is political russian roulette. we have a narrow window of opportunity to make sure that the vote gets out. what the president did last night was energize the suppress the vote people trying to intimidate obama supporters. on the other hand you have the left now looking for direction saying, okay, mr. president, do you really believe in what you're saying because there were moment l

determine the outcome here. barack obama's victory here in north carolina four years ago was the first by a democrat since 1976. it was helped in large part by a huge turnout by african-americans, a whooping 72%, well above the national average. but his win here was his slimmest margin in the country. a mere 14,000 votes. it looks like he'll have to do as well or better among blacks and other voters in this deeply divided state. the task is made harder by the hit north carolina took in the recession. unemployment was 9.7%, fifth highest in the country. the rate for african-americans is nearly double. and the state has seen enormous change. demographically with the reverse migration of blacks returning and an influx of hispanics and other new residents. and economically. u.n.c. professor and long time political reporter says north carolina is moving in two directions at once >> the up escalator in this state is the economic diversification into higher-wage, higher-skill, research and development, biotechnology. the down escalator is the collapse of the traditional industries of textiles

capitalizes on it with what he did last night. what is different than four years ago when barack obama took the stage in mississippi he came out with grand ideas about all of us coming together and how we are going to cut the deficit in half and the world will like us again, and how we are going to get out of iraq and afghanistan. guess what, now he's going to run on what he's done over the last four years and there is not a lot he can point to to say that they were successful. that's what got him in trouble last night. if mitt romney does this the next couple of debates and he continues to go out there in the way he did last night and saying, this is how you failed, this is where you failed, this is where it's not adding up, i'm not sure barack obama can really come back with actual facts or figures, because he doesn't have those as time to run on. megyn: simon did you share chris matthews' frustration at the president's performance? >> i may have not been as animated as he was last night. the president didn't have a good night. mitt romney had a good night. megyn: what happened to barack

to ask president obama -- "if you did not turn around the economy within three years, you said in 2009, your presidency would be one term." see: let's jump over and the top question for mitt romney. host: would you like to ask the candidates as we go over the debate. the top story this morning on the front page that we are looking at right now, "middle- class detour." the story looks at local voters, saying that the next american president will be governing a shrinking middle class. people in that income range had a message for the president that transcended political ideology. the percentage of americans that fit into the middle income category was exacerbated in the 2000's as median family income shrunk. in colorado, where it started to raise in 2007, its stubbornly hung around 8% for the last year. it is the slower rate compared to household population overall. other articles look at the impact of the latino vote in colorado. let's hear what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are

and spending policies are threatening the financial foundation of our country. every year since barack obama has been president,, the federal government has spent over a trillion dollars packard more than it has taken in. we have a $16 trillion national debt. we are mortgaging the a future of our children. the national debt today totals $50,000 for every man, woman, and child in in america. we can do better and we will be better when we elect mitt romney and paul ryan on november 6. president obama call would have us believe that this is somehow the new bubble. joe biden -- joe biden. there is the gift that keeps on giving. they would have us believe that somehow this is the normal. that this is the best america can be. they would have us be our best days as a nation are behind us. that up -- we don't believe that. we believe the 21st century will be another american century. we believe our best days are yet to come. we know that to do that, we have to have new leadership in washington d.c. and we need mitt romney and we need paul ryan.

president obama as a candidate ran on four years ago, was bringing the nation together and yet, last night on the stage, it was mitt romney talking about how he had found bipartisanship with his health care plan and president obama had not with obamacare. >> it's part of the contrast in their records, when you look at governor romney work with a democratic legislature, 87% of the seats in the state house and state senate in massachusetts were held by democrats when he was the governor, and yet they were able to work across the aisle to get things done for the people of massachusetts. they cut taxes 19 times. they balanced the budget and got a rainy day fund and upgraded their credit rating in massachusetts. they brought unemployment down to 5.7%. and that's in sharp contrast. we've had our national credit rating downgraded as a result of president obama's policies. he's not worked across the aisle and we've had unemployment go up as a result of his policies. >> gretchen: although president obama's biggest critique of your candidate is that there simply are not enough details in his plan. s

important one is that 20 years ago i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. you know, four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people we've begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is not where we've been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in education and training. i thin

the medicare trust fund by eight years, benefits were not affected at all, and ironically, if you repeal obama care, and i have become fond of this term, obama care, if you repeal it, what happens is those seniors right away are going to be paying $600 more in prescription care. they're now going to have to be paying co-pays for basic checkups that can keep them healthier. and the primary beneficiary of that repeal are insurance companies that are estimated to gain billions of dollars back when they aren't making seniors any healthier. and i don't think that's the right approach when it comes to making sure that medicare is stronger over the long term. >> we'll talk about -- specifically about health care in a moment. but do you support the voucher system, governor? >> what i support is no change for current retirees and near-retirees to medicare. and the president supports taking $716 billion out of that program. >> what about the vouchers? >> that's number one. >> all right. >> number two is for people coming along that are young. what i do to make sure that we can keep medicare in place for
